ADVANCED RESEARCH BUILDING, NORTHERN ARIZONA UNIVERSITY, FLAGSTAFF, ARIZONA

UK ARCHITECTURE - SUSTAINABILITY - HOPKINS ARCHITECTS

This three-storey building is formed around a new stormwater retention basin, with a south-facing gallery collecting winter solar radiation but carefully shading against the high-altitude summer sun. Materials are sourced from within 800km of the site, while the modest heating loads are met by a district heating system, and an off-site photovoltaic array provides renewable electricity.
